Spreading Light & Love, One Song at a Time.

Sahffi Lynne is an international self-proclaimed “neo-alternative folk artist” who spreads her message of “Light & Love” through her heart-grabbing performances. Her sound is best described as a blend of folk, rock and blues, all stemming from her early training in classical music. (Think Fiona Apple meets Joni Mitchell with a splash of Tori Amos.) 

Sahffi is an accomplished full-time musician, vocalist, instrumentalist (guitar, djembe, French horn), recording artist, private teacher and coach, and an accomplished performer.

Highlights of Sahffi's performances in the last few years include CenterStage’s March cabaret in Baltimore, Md, Artscape performances for the past five years, and opening slots with her duo goatFISH for national acts Carbon Leaf, Matthew Santos, Preach Freedom and Rusted Root throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

As an international singer/songwriter, Sahffi claimed a #1 hit in 2010 entitled "Summer Breeze" in South Africa with producer N'Dinga Gaba, plus a #1 download "Live 4 Now" on Traxsource as a member of the international house group “t3N.”

Sahffi has also been awarded an Individual Artist Grant awarded by The Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts and The Maryland State Arts Council.

Sahffi has released four full length albums: "...and I am not sorry," "Turning Tides," "Expectations" and "Expectations Revisited." She is currently working on her fifth album with Jason Love of the Columbia Symphony Orchestra, who will arrange the album for orchestral instruments.  The new album will tie together her first love of classical music (she is a graduate of the Peabody Conservatory with a Bachelor's of Music in French horn performance) with her current passion of singing and songwriting.
